1.
Let me feel it, without devotion All alone, focusing on the ocean Something good will happen today I'm on my knees and my forehead is pressed up Against some decive I feel like a forcept And I'll believe without having seen, it's the same Pressure under, wind above us Currents below us, wind above us
2.
Widower 05:23
Today I am lost Wondering what went wrong Today I am wandering through the trees Like the wind So far gone and forgotten (Who is the Widower?) I've forgotten the good old days (Who is the Widower?) And where is the window (Who is the Widower?) I can crawl through (Who is the Widower?) You became an old friend Of used-to-be's, and way-back-whens And now today I am wandering Over houses to another shore So far gone and forgotten (Who is the Widower?) I've forgotten the good old days (Who is the Widower?) And where is the moon bow (Who is the Widower?) Where I can find you, waiting there for me? (Who is the Widower?) credits

Behave 02:39
I feel OK on a windy day It's in the wind that I feel this way From where you hang lower yourself down Fear and flight won't turn your life around And you don't have to do it that way It's up to you have you behave And you don't have to see it that way Ask who you love how to behave
4.
Helicopter 04:37
He's afraid of his markings He don't want no possessions But the ghost still tries to keep his spirit alive In a chest that stores a heart you'll see There's no room for bad memory And so I ask you, is it a shame Not to know right from wrong? Jump like a helicopter and look for the children In the water all those bubbles rising from your nose Help them stop them no one'll know This bathing suit's for you my dear Are you happy that we're finally here? An early morning at a late funeral It's an early morning at a late funeral The children are holding up your arms To stay afloat in the shallow waters I'm holding back from helping you To save myself from the community Close your eyes and I'll be with you When you open them again on top of the Tallest hill in the world Just upon the outskirts of the town Together as one we love you Together as one, little alarm clock! Early morning at a late funeral Left all pictures that I took of you When you weren't watching Backwards for a moment I thought you left too Make sure that you're ready for the morning after we are through I'm sincerely happy for you On this early morning at a late funeral
5.
Mountain 02:50
The mountain was on fire The mountain was on fire And I came outside to see And I came outside to see The fog hung above the sound The fog hung above the sound And it took my breath a while It took my breath a while The sky was made of gold The sky was made of gold And I took the long way home I took the long way home
6.
With a sorrow in our hearts we can play And I look up to you When we hear different sounds that the heartless do Wakeful at night looking everywhere for You Why do I look up to you? And we hear different sounds than the heartless do Wakeful at night looking everywhere for You Why do I look up to you?
7.
Ice Cream 05:19
When I was four I ran through the door To get to the ice cream first But sometimes we stumble in front of everyone When I was three I thought it was neat To pick cotton from all the toys But sometimes we get caught up in thought I am the child Fell in the wall Shorter than the curtains fall But see I'm standing tall
8.
LMJ 03:49
The memory of her riding the black horse Under the pale moon on a black night During the fight that soon would take her life And leave me in this empty hall Where I'm sweeping up the memories that I had of her She hurt me so much in life I felt used and I suffered in disguise When the truth came suddenly from my father The pain to turned to guilt and I wept and wept Until I felt the memory of her.........
9.
Happy Man 04:00
It's so hard to live so far Go home for 2 weeks And then have to leave Oh, am I killing them? Do they resent me? For being so free And choosing to leave Your happy man in a golden mean isn't smiling all the time I used to drive to stay alive Until this one day, I saw a trailer The horses all fell out, all over the freeway The ground steaming with blood It was raining and muddy Your happy man in a golden mean isn't smiling all the time
10.
Moving Roads 02:32
I felt a pull from inside me, from below A storm overhead, and it's looming and dead Follow your heart like a road Whether it moves too fast or too slow You can see it's not what you're for You are after what is before
11.
Alibit 02:28
All I ever tried to do was fall in love with you Could you love me too? I'm not dying I made up the alibi and gave you things to do Although things fell through I'm still trying Trying to make the mornings full of night And all the evenings full of light With all the orbits that just might Be following you Everyone sees when I turn to look away But I don't see any other way These days I have nothing, I have nothing left to say
12.
Wedding Days 07:14
Get away from the water's edge You're all alone, it's time to pledge your love So go home where you are from These are wedding days it's time to renew those vows Pressure under, wind above us Currents below us, wind above us
